Healthline.com has assembled a group of medical experts to discuss the coronavirus in its present and future contexts. It’s not a happy outlook, but we’d best be aware of what’s ahead.
The first thing is to avoid multiple contacts in crowds and to purchase face masks when they become available. (Drug stores are likely to be out of them more regularly than not.)
Coronavirus is described as “a bullet train without the constraint of train tracks. It is moving very fast in many directions at the same time.” That means the virus will likely be everywhere before much longer. So start taking precautions, say, with your next breath. If it eases off in a month or two, it’s “likely to recur next fall”. Seriously.
You probably know by now that younger people have a far better chance of besting the coronavirus than older ones, but that will always be germane.
It’s likely to be 18 months before the U.S. has an effective vaccine for the coronavirus. We could go on, but there’s more first-hand information in the Healthline post. Check it out directly. (And learn how to stop touching your face.)
